This is by far, for me, the most detailed Helicopter I have ever built that the Lego Technic has designed and distributed. This is massive and has a lot of features! Just taking my time, it probably took me about 4-5 hours just enjoying the intricate detail of building this set from the ground up. Makes me curious while you're building how the main rotor head functions as well as how all 3 landing gear assembly retracts simultaneously! I had my friend assemble the 2nd model featured and its rotor head functions are as crazy to look at as well! It was fun looking at it! I do recommend installing the power functions for this ginormous helicopter to fully enjoy it's features without having to turn the gear to be able to move each feature. So sad they ran out of that set. I wished this set came with it.

This is so cool! You can even go online and make another model with it. On the first model, it runs on a LEGO motor. The color is perfect for me.

This Will Be A Classic Technic Set

By EddieTheChronicler

from Valmeyer

Comments about LEGO Technic Helicopter (9396):

This set is amazing. The "A" variant is able to use Power Functions to use all of it's features, which allow you to turn the rotors, use the winch, raise and lower the wheels, and raise and lower the back ramp. To be honest, I was quite surprised that the set chose to put the raise/lower landing gear and turn rotors functions on the same gear, meaning that you can spin the rotors, raise the landing gear, but not do both at the same time. This is just personal preference, and I think that this is a great set with inventive features. Additionally, the set comes with the ability to change the angle of the rotor, an important part of flying a real helicopter. The "B" variant, in my opinion, is the unsung hero of this set (there is a surprising lack of pics aside from Reveoon's, so I included some). With all Technic sets (that I can recall right now), the set comes with an "a" and "B" variant. The "A" variant is the set's original design. The "B" variant is Lego telling it's engineers to make something new and relative using only the parts given for the "A" variant. Many say the Technic and Creator sets are the same in this respect but in fact the Creator designers are allowed to use extra pieces for the additional models, whereas the Technic designers have a much tougher job with their much tighter parts supply. Nonetheless, the designers whipped up a truly amazing twin-rotor helicopter, which is a difficult design is you have access to as many pieces as you want. Limit the parts and create a complex and realistic design? I really don't know how the set designers did it. I love the B variant more because of that ingenuity and the fact that you rarely see twin-rotor helicopters. The B variant comes with two of the four main features: the rotor turning and the landing gear (which once again cannot be done simultaneously). I love the landing gear design on the twin-rotor: two gears that come off of the sides of the helicopter and fold under the belly. Additionally the B variant allows the user to tilt the rotors just as the A variant does. Still really enjoy this set, was worth every penny! Definitely recommend if you find a used one for sale. P.S. I didn't really think about this until the end of my review, but this set is H-U-G-E HUGE!!! That was my first impression of the set was wow this is big!! Huge set, huge rotor span, long helicopter, h-u-g-e!!

I first made a normal helicopter as the picture shown on the box. When I finished I realized that there is another instruction and it is much cooler!! I dismantled the first one and changed it to a two-rotor helicopter.

    Grandson had oral surgery in Colorado last week and the LEGO Helicopter was his best medicine! He was so into building his helicopter that he didn't complain much about the four teeth that had been pulled or his bland liquid diet! The Legos came to the rescue again! His father is over seas and he was able to speak to his father and told him all about the Lego technic helicopter! If only the Legos weren't so expensive! :)

        By HappyLegoMom

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about LEGO Technic Helicopter (9396):

        I bought my son this set for his 5th birthday and he was excited while we walked out of the store. Before this build, he was able to finish the highway pickup truck of Lego Creator in one day, so I thought this was just a little bit harder for him. However, it turned out to be a real challenge shortly after he started to build it. The parts are quite different from the Creator sets an it took him a while to get use of it. He made some mistakes, felt frustrated and even walked away a little while sometimes. Finally it took him two and half days, including about a day of crying and standby due to frustration, to finish it and when completed, we found it very amazing, big and playable. I do not give a full scale because the instruction is not as clear as our other Lego sets, maybe because it is more complicated.

          Kids had a blast building and playing with set. I bit difficult to assemble in places, but with Dad's help makes a good family-time activity. Definitely 'swooshable'. Although you can get the motor and battery box, not really needed.
